Mexican Restaurant Cheese Dip

by Iber

This dip is similar to white cheese sauces served in many Mexican restaurants. The amount of heat can be adjusted by adding your favorite chili pepper or crushed cayenne pepper to taste. As is, it is kid-friendly, quick, and delicious! It can be used as a dip for tortilla chips or a sauce for many Mexican dishes.


1/2 pound White American Cheese
2 tablespoons of diced green chiles, chopped super fine
1/4 tsp garlic powder (optional)
3/4 cup to 1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste


Cube the cheese and place in a saucepan with green chiles, garlic powder and milk.
Heat on medium heat for 10-12 minutes until the cheese has melted.
Once it is all melted together, if the cheese is still too thick, you can add more milk to thin it out to your desired consistency
Season with salt and pepper to taste and enjoy
